Access to a resource pool is controlled primarily through access grants set in the security group definitions. Additionally, the user who creates a resource pool can specify a list of users who can view it, edit its basic information, edit its lines, or edit its security.
Users are linked to access grants through the security groups to which they belong. The access grants related to resource pools are discussed in more detail in Table 4-3. Resource pool access grants. Without these access grants, a user cannot view or edit a resource pool regardless of whether or not they are specified in the list on the resource pool's Configure Access page. For more information on access grants and security groups, see the Security Model Guide and Reference.
The Configure Access page for a resource pool is used to grant additional editing access to the resource pool to each user on the list individually. All users listed on the Configure Access page minimally have viewing access.
Note: Without the proper access grants, a user cannot view or edit a resource pool regardless of whether they are specified in the list on the resource pool's Configure Access page. See Resource pool access grants for more detailed information.
The Configure Access page options are discussed in more detail in Table 4-4. Security Options for Resource Pool Configure Access page.
